How to Bankrupt the Doctors.
A prominent New York physician
says, "If it were not for the thin stock
ings and thin soled shoes worn by
women the doctors would probably be
bankrupt." When you contract a cold
do not wait for it to develop into pneu
monia but treat it at once. Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is intended espe
cially for coughs and colds, and has
won n wide reputation by its cures of
these diseases. It is most effectual and
it is pleasant and safe to take. For

Jed lYIooncy Released.
The case of State vs Jed Mooney,
charged with cattle stealing was fin
ished up in the county court Tuesday
afternoon and Judge Grant dismissed
the case on tho grounds that Mooney
did not tako the steer with the felon
ious intent of keeping it. Several wit
nesses for both sides were heard.
It seems that one of a bunch of
steers which Mooney was feeding had
strayed away and joined Neskott's herd
and that Mooney went after it
but got the wrong steer. When he
discovered that ho had the wrong one
ho decided to call it i trade and
branded tho steer that he had brought
home. He left word with Heskett'i
men where he was taking tho steer and
told them that ho would not leave until
the next morning and the suit was tho
result. Heskett is a resident of Lin
coln county, but Mooney lives over the
line in McPherson county.

CALIFORNIA'S BEST SEASON IS ALL
THE YEAR 'ROUND
Seasons have but little effect in the uniformly pleasing climate of
California every day is a day for out-door sports; and there arc
special attractions for every member of the family.
When you go to California is of little consequence, but how you go
is of all importance.
There is one best way the road that has proven its superiority
for nearly half a century, the road whose service is as uniformly
perfect as California's climate.
